Snails Pace is a great retreat! It is a very short walk to both the beach, and the town center. The home is very clean, well furnished, and up to date. In the mornings I brewed up a pot of coffee, pored myself a cup, and two minutes later I was at the beach enjoying the cool breeze and my java. One evening we watched a lightning storm from the enclosed "crows nest". It was a great light show. In real estate they say the key to a good property is location, location, location. Well, Snails Pace has both location and comfort. Highly recommend!
Our first time at Snail's Pace, and it was wonderful! This is our third trip to Seaside, and Snail's Pace was the best yet. The house is beautiful and located conveniently close to the private beach and the square. Having small kids, the location was a huge plus! The house amenities and furnishings are first class and make for an even better stay. Could not ask for more! We are already looking forward to coming back next year! Thanks for everything!
We had a wonderful week in Seaside. This was our first time and it was an awesome experience. Snails pace has a lovely screened in front porch for coffee and relaxing in the am. Then off for a bike ride through the beautiful neighborhood. The house has great amenities, comfortable and cozy. Short walk to the private beach for more enjoyment in the ocean or to the private pools. Great getaway!
We had another great vacation at Snail's Pace. The updates to the house were great. The painting, new furniture, floors etc. Everything was very clean. We love the close location to the beach as well as the shops/restaurants. Thank you for another great vacation!
My husband and I just spent a wonderful long weekend at Snail's Pace in Seaside and had an amazingly relaxing and fun time. The house is very charming, warm and inviting. The third story tower has an awesome view of the ocean and is so calming I almost didn't want to leave it to do anything else. The location makes going to the beach so quick and easy and the house is stocked with everything you need if you come with little kids (gates, etc) or big ones (wine opener). The community is very welcoming and friendly; we rented bikes and either walked or biked everywhere we needed to go. The two women at Sandpiper Vacation Rentals - Brenda and Gina - were super helpful and accommodating. We look forward to going back soon.
We just came home after a wonderful week at Snail's Pace. Very cozy and beach feel cottage. Perfect for reconnecting with family. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and pretty much ate every meal in our cottage, made good use of the barbecue pit. Cottage was well stocked with board games and cards for indoor activities. Also, looked forward to going to bed because the beds were so comfortable;we probably slept in more than we should have. The location was so close to the beach that we took advantage of many walks to the beach day and night.
If you want hassle free walks to the beach, town square general store, ice cream, snow cones, good food, shopping and want to wear your flipflops all the time, this is your place...Obviously, still feeling blissful and can't wait to go back!
